       Opponent        Encounter Text Notes
A voice rings out behind you. "Hey, an intruder! Time to test out the needler!"

Moments later, tiny slivers of metal start embedding themselves in the wall next to you.
coffee.jpg (?) GunEmplacements.jpg
As you make your way through the lab, you hear a squawking voice "Warning, unauthorized access!"

A moment later, a gun turret slides out of the ceiling and begins filling the corridor with flying lead.
coffee.jpg (?) GunEmplacements.jpgx2
As you make your way through the winding halls of the lab, two turrets deploy from the walls in front of you. They single-mindedly begin filling the air with lead.
Eclipse.jpg ratking.jpg
You turn the corner to find yourself knee-deep in a boiling mass of rats, surging towards you with a single will.
Eclipse.jpg Tentacle100.jpg
As you move through the building, you hear a strange rattling in the walls. It stops and starts again repeatedly, each time getting closer.

Finally, when the sound is almost unbearable, the wall cracks open with a massive cloud of steam. Strange shapes move in the cloud, but your first concern is the massive gout of steam engulfing you.

(and, without an air filter)
You get a face full of scalding steam, <dealing 6-9 (fire) damage and leaving you dazed.> /<but you mostly shrug it off.>
Gain <damage> energy of Scalded

(or, if your face is protected)
Thankfully, your face is sealed away from the worst of the steam, but you're still scalded for (8-10? (fire)) damage.

(Damage portion of message doesn't appear if fire defense>damage taken)
(If brought down to 0 hp, get beaten up message, combat does not start)
As you make your way through a facility, you hear someone yelling. You don't catch most of it, but it seems to be a woman berating several people for their utter failure at securing the facility.

You get a quick glance of Dr. Mira vanishing down a hallway as two figures in containment suits come rushing in the opposite direction.
Failing to defeat Dr. Mira
